After spending a week studying hard between shifts at work and trying to squeeze in all your club activities, when the weekend rolls around you are ready for some fun. Here are a few ways to unwind this weekend.
It has often been said that no one knows how to tailgate quite like the Canes. Football season during fall semester is the prime for tailgating. Get together with a group of friends or join in on a fraternity tailgate.
2. Go to South Beach
South Beach is home to the one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Get away from campus for a couple hours and enjoy the outdoors. Don’t forget to grab a bite to eat at one of the delicious restaurants South Beach has to offer like Yardbird or Taquiza.
